Apology Letters

   Apology For Argument Standing Ground

Dear {Name},

I am sorry that we argued. As I'm sure you could tell, I feel very strongly about {topic}. To me, it's not an issue for political debate or some kind of thought experiment. {Issue} is about respect, social justice, and other values that I hold dear.

I can't and won't take back what I said, but I do wish that I had phrased myself differently. I sometimes come away from arguments wondering if there was anything I could have done to better communicate my position.

As a follow-up, I wanted to share a few resources with you, from sources that I hope you will find unbiased.

{Sources and links}

If you would like to discuss this heated topic in the future, or are open to me connecting you with {advocates/experts} who might be able to articulate more clearly than I was able to, please let me know.

I value our relationship, and it breaks my heart that we can't see eye-to-eye on an issue that is so critical to our shared society.
